OREGON COAST 50K & 30k

Innaugural running race from the beach to the bluffs to ridges high above to waves crashing into rocks just feet away, this race is never far from the ocean and always incredibly scenic. Starting on a wide, flat beach just south of Waldport, Oregon, you'll run to the small seaside town of Yachats and past it to Cape Perpetua Park. After running a big loop at Cape Perpetua, you'll head back to an ocean-side finish at a hotel lawn in Yachats. Most of the miles are on fun, soft singletrack, that winds its way along the course, and there's also a bit of sandy but firm beach running [six miles at the start], a tiny bit of pavement, and some packed gravel trail to round out the course. You'll run flat sections, steep sections, big hills, little hills, through deep old forest, and right next to crashing surf. You'll have views up high, and views right on the beach. This race really does have something for everyone!
When: Sat October 18
